Summary: Those with Essence equal to or less that yours who wish to attack or close to within 10 feet of you must make a Valor roll at a difficulty of half your Essence. Creatures of darkness who fail writhe in pain, unable to take any action but move away.
The air around the solar fills with burning, blinding light. Her form seems to grow, her shadow lengthen. Those who look upon her see not her face, but only her shape, silhouetted black before the inescapable light of the sun. Any character opposing the solar who can see her must roll his Valor against a difficulty equal to half the solar’s permanent Essence, rounded up; on a failure, he cannot attack the solar or enter within 10 feet of him while this charm remains in effect. In addition, any servants of darkness (walking dead, nemessaries, first circle demons, etc.) who fail this roll are overcome with pain — they fall to the ground in place, unable to take any action other than to slowly crawl away from the character. This charm does not affect anyone with a permanent Essence greater than the exalt's.
